I'm more afraid of diabetes, but since I exercise regularly, I hope I don't get it. I also hope my kids don't, as there's a genetic element to it too.

Since you do exercise and watch your diet, your chances of getting diabetes are slim. Usually you get type 1 diabetes from genetic history. Most people who have that, get it early on in life. My grandmother had diabetes, but it was middle-aged onset diabetes, due to her diet and being overweight.
